"A Quiet Little Neighborhood"

The El Cerro neighborhood is a cute little neighborhood on the northern end of Danville straddling--you guessed it--El Cerro Road. It is a very pleasant, bushy neighborhood--the kind of place that just feels sheltering, and almost bucolic in spots.

One of the drawbacks of this neighborhood is that there are no sidewalks, making it harder for walks and bike riding. Though the streets are wide enough that most people should be okay walking in most cases. Also because these streets are not very busy and are gently curved, cars tend not to speed through the neighborhood. (I would still prefer sidewalks, however.)

Homes run in the near one million dollar range.

Overall this is a pretty nice little neighborhood for families if you can afford it and if your hubby doesn’t mind the commute.
